Clarksville, Tennessee – Take out your fishnet stockings and dust off your stiletto heels! After a year-long hiatus, this sweet transvestite and his motley crew are back for the ninth year in an annual tradition at the corner of Franklin and First in historic downtown Clarksville.

Matthew Combs and Kelsey McCollaum play Brad Majors and his fiancée Janet Weiss – a healthy, well-behaved and utterly normal young couple in love – who innocently decided to visit an old professor one fateful night.
The night is destined to be one they will never forget, as a thunderstorm and a flat tire lead them to the castle of Dr. Frank ‘N’ Furter (played by Stephen Shore *), an alien scientist cross-dressing with a maniac genius and insatiable libido, played by a Stephen Shore * in a stiletto and fishnet stockings.
When the cohorts of Brad, Janet and Frank ‘N’ Furter are drawn into the scientist’s final experiment, the night’s misadventures will cause Brad and Janet to question each other, love and lust. . A loving tribute to cult, sci-fi and horror films with an irresistible rock’n’roll score, it’s a hilarious and savage race that Clarksville will not soon forget.
